I like the borderless with OPENGL, is it possible to get that with GDI?

Hey, is there anyway to use OPENGL and make window fullscreen in lobby??

Thanks!

I can answer your first question from the other thread:

What is the best renderer to use for war2? How do I prevent the war2 window to not resize to small size when in lobby? I want fullscreen all the time but the possibility to use alt+enter for going to window mode, but always full screen.


OpenGL and Direct3d 9 used to be the best because they both fixed the laggy cursor on windows 8/10 and I've been using Direct3d 9 for a long time. The only problem is they can only fix the issue by running the lobby in a window (there isn't any good solution to solve the problem unfortunately).

I just recently updated the renderers/config program and the new best renderer is now GDI with "Hardware Cursor" enabled. With this new update you don't have a laggy cursor anymore and at the same time you can also have the lobby in fullscreen now as well.

Get the Warcraft 2 Config.zip from the first post, extract it into your game folder. Then run Warcraft 2 Config and make sure your renderer is set to GDI and Hardware Cursor is enabled and you'll have what I use now as well


Oh, and yes... you can alt+enter whenever you want with GDI. The latest version also got a maximize button now as well


Thanks for fast reply! If I press alt+enter with GDI, I get a small screen and the maximize button is not working. Would be nice to just keep it full screen but mouse free to go to other monitor. I run latest Windows 10.

It's not that important for War2 that Human is balanced with Orc. Maybe you can make it little bit more balanced, either nerf lust a little or maybe give knights and movement speed upgrade instead of healing. Would make Human more fun to play. Anyways what War2 needs most is better lobby and hosting options. Make it possible to host games with more settings and also observer functions etc. Also fix dead spot issue would be nice. :)

Fun that you trying to make a mod out of War 2 though, but will not work for competitive play. But I hope you have fun doing it :)

8) Mods & Development / Observer spot
« on: September 23, 2020, 09:16:36 AM »
Hi,

Is it possible for someone to add an observer alternative to the next client update? For example when you host a game and select orc-human-random you also can also select observer. When game starts you won't get any units or buildings but still be in game. This would be the best improvement for Warcraft 2!

Any ideas how or if this could be made? : )

« on: September 10, 2020, 10:54:37 AM »
Another thing that could be balanced at the map is how easy it is to block between hall and gold on all spots. 4 is very easy to block off completely from mining which is very unfair. A piece of dirt could be added in front of mine to disable 3x3 building block.

I haven't really read through the thread. But what I have been thinking of to balance gow better is to:
1. Make one dirt to grass at 6.
2. Fill in three squares of grass at 4, where you normally build walls.

I think that will make it more balanced.
If you want to make the map easier to play for newbs, fix the 8 spawn issue. But I think most players wants to keep it as it is.

Now I see that this is suggested before : )

Blid is an old admin from around 2006, he played couple years on the server and since 10 years he have never played anymore, the fact that he just hang here like that to watch the forum and take decision like if it matters make me believe he is just a smurf and troll.. iL is the head admin of the server, he dont play the game anymore, but he is really good to take this game into dictature. Everytime we want to improve this game and it concern CLIENT, SERVER, OR HEAD ADMINISTRATION... He act like it's never possible. I think he only use us as what we call Zombies Network! Something that alot of Russians love to do. At the moment he telling us that we cant have new HEAD ADMINISTRATION because he miraculously made the server on LINUX platform, but whats the point with his personal LINUX computer and a pvpg server that came back from 1995 when linux was not even existing... It make no sens at all, he just dont want nobody to see what is happening in this server, thats what i think. By the way, he will also say all those shutdown are due to dos attack, but it's false again, iL transfert the game to another server six month ago, he probably find a better deal where he pay less, and that server is total trash! Six month ago before he transfert to that server, war2 was not that bad.

And please, dont say ping is not bad, ping is total trash and there 2 reason for it... The server that he just transfert is trash, and he still allow mutiples different clients to connect on the server, wich bring a corruption on the latency. Go try war2usa and you will see what a good ping is!

I understand IL, I wouldn't let some random unknown guy on the internet into my server. Especially with all the drama that is going on. To have one guy access all the personal information, IP:S passwords, usernames etc makes sense. But If you can find someone you trust that you think have the skills to help, I guess that would be a good thing. But as I said, I wouldn't trust people I don't know.

You need to listen to what I'm saying. The ping to the server doesn't affect gameplay at all. Only lag in lobby and joining games. When you start the game you get dis attached from the server. That's why you can play a game even if the server goes down after you started the game.

How do you know the crashing of the server is not from DDOS? The only reason I can see the server crash, is by overload (not likely), an attack or IL is running a server at his home, and he got unstable electricity etc. Most likely it is some kind of attacks. But IL can probably answer this?

Why war2usa has better latency in games is probably because most of the players have good routing to each others. The more players and the more countries around the world that will play, the more it will lag.

BTW. Linux is a good choice when you run a server. It's the most common way to run servers. I have been running many servers with Linux, it's not a bad choice...

Yeah, Tora I know you. And I've seen IL. But this Blid guy everyone is talking about I don't understand why he is a part of this. If he're just for the drama I don't know if it's a good thing. I think it's good that IL dedicates his time to do make the server running and you Tora is doing a lot of good for the community! Thanks. But there is other people that wants to contribute but it seems like this Blid guy is making it hard?

What is the problem with the current server? Sometimes it is down, mostly when it is attacked. Not a big problem imo. If the server is so unstable just move it to a new vps?

Problem is with regards to it crashing, is because we have someone ddosing it all the time. IL, myself, and Blid are discussing to find and promote a new Linux admin on the server to assist in server outages. Hopefully we will happen soon.

As far as moving to server to a new "vbs." I don't really understand what this means, would you elaborate?

So there is three main ways to run a server. You rent a dedicated server from a server company, this means nobody else will use the server at the same time. One computer for just you. VPS is you rent a dedicated server with other people you don't know, you share one dedicated server. This is very common. Everyone that is renting the server has their own virtual machines running on the dedicated server, isolated from each others. Another option is you own your own hardware, you put a computer in your basement and run it as a server on your own internet connection. Then you only pay for hardware and electricity.

Maybe IL can answer this thread and tell us more about the server environment? I had several servers, dedicated and vps. Now I'm running most of my things in "Google Cloud Platform". You get a good VPS for free first year, then you have to pay a few dollars every month. You also get access to a lot of Google technology. For example if some one would DDOS my server Google has the protection I need: https://cloud.google.com/armor

But still I don't feel like the down time is a big issue with war2...

I have some questions.

Who is this Blid guy? Who are the admins of the server? Are they even playing the game?
What is the problem with the current server? Sometimes it is down, mostly when it is attacked. Not a big problem imo. If the server is so unstable just move it to a new vps? You need more admins to ban people? Can someone list all the resons why we need new server and new admins? All this drama...

When you start a new game, the ping to the server is not an issue. Because the game you playing is independent from the server. The server only makes sure players can find and connect to each others. So how laggy the games is all about the connection between all players in that particular game. Basically the ping to server doesn't affect gameplay.

Hey Warcraft 2 Friends!

I played my two latest maps a bit and came to the conclusion that I had to change some stuff. I did some major updates to Echo Isles and Turtle Rock. Hopefully this is the final release. If you dl the old versions, please delete the old version and re-download again please.
